Robber broke zipper, and now I gtg

Even though my Jeep was unlocked a robber still felt inclined to bust out my window. Well the zipper is completely busted and now I have to drive 4 hours tomorrow (on interstate) without a window up. Any suggestions to keep that soft top window up on the drive down? I am trying to avoid tape since I could never remove the adhesive off of the tape.

Safety pins through fabric of window, and zipper on top.. Get 'em at any gas station or walmart. Won't be perfect, but it'll hold!

Duct tape shouldn't leave residue for a short duration. If you're concerned - you might find a "no residue" tape at the hardware store (I found one so it should be an easy search).

Binder clips. Always keep a few handy, quite useful! They make a good phone mount too!

Paracord! Cut small incisions all the way around both sides of zipper and lace it like a boot. Pull tight and tie then melt ends. Will hold no matter what and zipper can still be replaced by upholstery shop because nothing else is damaged.
